Shocking photo shows California high school students covered in swastikas

Wheatland High School in California is at the center of controversy after a photo circulated on social media showing alleged students sporting swastika mock tattoos all over their bodies. Now, parents are calling on the school to act, ABC10 reports.

In the photo, eight students can be seen sporting Nazi symbols. Not much is known about the circumstances surrounding the picture.

In a statement, Wheatland Union High School District Superintendent Nicole Newman said the incident is under investigation and that they can’t comment.

"However, I want to make very clear that our district seeks to educate our students in an environment of respect for each other, for our community and humankind. The District prohibits any discrimination, harassment, intimidation or bullying of any student or staff member," Newman said.

One parent who didn't want to be identified said his daughter feels the district has done nothing.

"She did mention that nothing is being done," the parent said. "She’s tired of these same exact people getting away with things like this, so it kind of adds to the frustration."
